Default D7000 out of stock

Hi, this is my first thread and i came with some questions

First of all sorry for my poor english i hope you understand me

I am planning to buy a Nikon D7000 to replace my old d80, by now i am looking for the factory kit with 18-105 lens but the thing is that the camera its out of stock in every big store in USA; adorama, best buy, amazon, ritz bhphotovideo, even ebay, every one are out of stock so i am in big trouble

I was reading the steve's review and at the end of every page ( as you can see here http://www.steves-digicams.com/camer...00-review.html ) there is a list with some sellers (rythercamera, best price photo, digital depot, etc) checked into these sites and apparently all of them had the camera in stock and suspiciously cheaper so...

Can i trust in these sellers? Can i give them my credit card number and expect a brand new (not refurbished or used) item in a few days?

Those sellers are actually recomended by steves-digicams? or are just commercial ads

Otherwise anyone of you knows a store that had the nikon D7000 in stock?

Thanks for your answers

Welcome to the forum.

Unfortunately, several of the sellers listed under the D7000 review
are known bait-and-switch scammers. Search resellerratings.com
for reviews from previous customers. The banner advert is from
Nextag.

This really shouldn't happen on a site which is supposed to
exist for the benefit of consumers. I think the time has come
to get rid of these banners, even if this results in a loss of
revenue for steves-digicams.

I did some checking at retailers that I shop (Amazon, B&H, Adorama) and it appears that they are indeed out of stock on the D7000's. Perhaps between the Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan as well as the flooding in Thailand in 2011, the inventories have been depleted. You may find a good used one at KEH--I purchased my D90 (refurbished) from them.

As noted, the problem is with Nextag (and it's similar competitors) that indescriminately list their search results. The low price rises, because that is what the search is designed to report.

While they provide the "single point" solution that is wasy to program in as a widget, dropping them and gaining quality control of content may not be that significant a hit - just a little more programming. Establish an affiliate relationship with those firms you trust - and feel confident would reflect positively on you - then insert the appropriate widgets to pull the data.
